Winter Solstice sunrise at Newgrange - 20th December 2005

I was at Newgrange on three mornings around the winter solstice but cloudy skies meant that there was no sunlight to illuminate the passage and chamber of the great mound. I am very grateful to Anne-Maria Moroney who was at Newgrange on the 20th of December and has made these images available. Anne-Maria was studying the shadows from the standing stones around the mound.

Winter Solstice Dates

Solstice literally means 'Sun Stands Still', for a few days around the time of the winter solstice the sun appears to stand still in the sky in that its elevation at noon does not seem to change. Click here for more information.
